Brief Answer:
No absolute contraindication.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome To HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I understand your concern.
There is no absolute contraindication to the use of Trazodone and Uloric (febuxostat).
However ideally thr combination should be best avoided the reason being that concomitant use of Febuxostat with Trazodone can increase the plasma levels of Trazodone causing it's side effects. Moreover together both can impair liver functions and rarely can cause Cardiac issues.
See your doctor and ask for a prescription of anti anxiety drug like Etizolam for your sleeping issues. Etizolam is short acting and is unlikely to cause any problems with Febuxostat.
I hope the information helps you.
If you have any further query, please ask me.
Stay Healthy.
